This and That

Many thanks to all y'all who came out (in a non-Kade way, of course) for my three-dozenth burfday last night. We had to keep it limited since I still can't handle much of a crowd in small spaces quite yet but it was great to see everybody. What else was great to see?
Former CBS 3 anchor Larry Mendte filed a lawsuit late yesterday against two Inquirer reporters and a former Daily News columnist, claiming charges of defamation and false light, according to court documents.
The lawsuit alleges that Mendte and former co-anchor Alycia Lane once had "a romantic relationship."
Mendte was fired from CBS 3 in June 2008, after federal investigators learned that he had hacked into Lane's e-mail account on several occasions. Mendte was convicted and served six months' house arrest in his Chestnut Hill home, which ended Monday.

Because he's one of the stories I was working on before the car came along.
And that...
Entrepreneurs are rarely cut from the button-up, office-tethered cloth. Dollars-in-hand be damned, they'll explore outrageous ideas; those who succeed often make whatever sacrifice is necessary to make their vision a reality. In early April, Philadelphia's University City neighborhood hosted hundreds of these dreamers.
Sure, the national and global economies haven't been this troubled in a generation, but the "Entrepreneur Expo" drew 400-plus registrants and more than 50 companies to the Science Center. They examined, showcased and discussed next-generation ideas about eco-friendly beachwear, biotech, online marketing and "everything in between." So, it's easy to see why organizers took that turnout to mean the desire to succeed will not succumb to any recession.

Because I wrote it on Keystone Edge today. Holla.
